Regulations governing natural flying areas in Haute Savoie

The nature parks have put in place communications to enable paragliders to share the sky with protected species. Depending on the season, the cliffside nesting sites become very sensitive areas that need to be preserved.


The Bauges massif

You may be lucky enough to share a flight with eagles, or see a Lammergeier !!! Europe's largest bird of prey, this mythical vulture has returned to the Bauges Park in recent years. To ensure maximum peace and quiet in the vicinity of the nest, no low-level overflights are permitted. and to stay on the marked paths in the area near the nest.

The new regulations were adopted in August 2018. It acknowledges thea ban on overflights at less than 300 metres by any means, motorised or not, with the exception of 4 areas for non-motorised aerial sports, which were developed in consultation with stakeholders.
